For the latest news, reviews and interviews about Barbie Wilde and her dark crime novel, The Venus Complex, please go to: http://www.barbiewilde.com. Fangoria #321: Barbie Wilde "is one of the finest purveyors of erotically charged horror fiction around."The Venus Complex: "A novel by a female Cenobite that gives the world a smart, artistic, cynical, cultured serial killer who could give Hannibal Lecter a run for his money. On top of that, this is a poignant, funny, sexually-charged, hardcore critique of popular culture and a deconstruction of relationships, academia, and art." - Horror Talk "Top Books of the Year"Barbie Wilde is best known as the Female Cenobite in Clive Barker's classic cult horror movie Hellbound: Hellraiser II. She has performed in cabaret in Bangkok, Thailand, robotically danced in the Bollywood blockbuster, Janbazz, played a vicious mugger in the vigilante thriller Death Wish III, and was a drummer for an electronica band in the so-called "Holy Grail of unfinished and unreleased 80's horror" Grizzly II: The Concert. Wilde was a founder member of the mime/dance/music group, SHOCK, which supported such artists as Gary Numan, Ultravox, Depeche Mode and Adam & the Ants in the 1980s. In the 80s and 90s, Wilde also presented and wrote eight different music and film review TV programs in the UK. In 2009-2014, Wilde contributed nine short horror stories to the following anthologies and publications: "Sister Cilice" (for the Hellbound Hearts Anthology); "U for Uranophobia" (Phobophobia); "American Mutant: Hands of Dominion" (Mutation Nation), "Polyp" (The Mammoth Book of Body Horror -- reprinted in The Unspoken); "A is for Alpdrück" (Demonologia Biblica); "Z is for Zulu Zombies" (Bestiarum Vocabulum -- reprinted in Fangoria's Gorezone #29); "The Cilicium Pandoric" (the sequel to "Sister Cilice" - Gorezone #30); "Botophobia" (Phobophobias, to be published in October 2014) and "W is for Writer's Block" (Grimorium Verum, December 2014). In 2014, Wilde contributed two short crime stories to Noir Nation 5 ("Mr Duggins' Stigmata") and Noir Nation 6 ("Beauty and the Skell: A Noir Fable").Wilde's dark crime novel, The Venus Complex, was published by Comet Press in November, 2012.

Sherlock Holmes and the Servants of Hell. There is so just much potential in the concept. Handle it right, and you've got yourself a horror/mystery that is destined to become a genre staple. Fumble it at any point, however, and you have two separate camps of fandom ready to critique, condemn, and dr...

The Venus Complex is a provocative journey into a psychopathic consciousness that is one of the most gripping and disturbing mind trips I've read. Told in a journal entry style first person narration, the first time we meet Michael Friday is the recounting of his wife's death in a car accident. His ...

I believe that Voices of the Damned might be the best story collection I've ever read! Every. Single. Story. Rocked. There wasn't even one dud hiding within these gems. What there was was perversity, erotically charged horror, body horror, bizarro horror, aliens and unbelievably awesome artwork. The...
